  • 0/1945 (1945), August 9, the last fat man atomic bomb 11:02, ever used in combat and exploded over Nagasaki, Matsuyama-Cho, 150000 people victims. For the Memorial of the bombing victims by country 0/2003 (2003), opened in July at the Nagasaki national peace Memorial Hall for the atomic bomb victims. See the glass Memorial space has become a blowout in the basin is on the first floor, but at first glance seemed to "Museum of art" ish. Entrance is on the ground floor, street photograph and note the reading corner, goes to the Office and former Memorial space. Consideration before entering the Memorial space in the front room and calming that has been calm, and entering the Memorial space. Contains list of a-bomb victims in the center of the glass on both sides has become a stairwell to the ground. Extension of this space is just at ground zero responsibility that is. Is also different from the Hiroshima National Peace Memorial Hall for the atomic bomb victims is to build. Despite the differences in shape, and is attached to the place was greeted at the end still seems like concept of Memorial. Obama's just in Hiroshima are housed in the Museum of "crane" is placed here a little stirred discomfort. I feel embarrassed even tourists have visited the Peace Memorial Museum was crowded with students and tourists who are connected by an underground passage Peace Memorial Hall and Museum is over too little difference. You must visit the Memorial and Museum, however, is out of place tourists seem to people though it may be right in a sense that there is another reason. Is also called a Nagasaki Hiroshima rage and reconstruction and, in each other's let its existence be good as I thought.

  • Very attractive, informative and with a lot of details designed. You get not bored as in some other museums. Nothing for small children. You get to see pictures of harmed and dead people. It is worth a visit!
  • Also, spent sometime , to view this memorial columns and tiles designed to remember those who perished on 9 Aug 1945 at 11.05 am.
  • The memorial is an aesthetic brutalist construction for sober prayer.
  • Very sad place, but good to remember us of the horrors of war. Hope there were more pictures... A must see when you come to Nagasaki. They have free WiFi which is useful to plan your next steps in the city.
  • I had a blast visiting this place, I brought my Little Boy here.
